Is LISTERINE® suitable for children?

LISTERINE® Smart Rinse is a specially formulated alcohol-free mouthwash for children aged 6 years+. Coming in a Mild Berry flavour it is even sugar-free! See the LISTERINE® Smart Rinse product page for more information.

How should I use LISTERINE®?

LISTERINE® is especially effective when used morning and evening after brushing your teeth. The routine that we suggest is brush, use floss or interdental brushes and then rinse with mouthwash. Please check the back of the pack for specific directions for use.

Do all LISTERINE® mouthwashes contain alcohol?

No, LISTERINE® Zero™ uses the same 4 essential oils formula used in other LISTERINE® mouthwashes, but without the alcohol, to give a deep clean with a less intense taste.

Can LISTERINE® help prevent staining?

Yes, tooth staining can be caused by plaque left behind on teeth that begins to harden and form tartar. LISTERINE® Tartar Control and LISTERINE® Total Care® contains zinc chloride which helps prevent tartar build up to help fight staining.

Do I still need to use LISTERINE® even if I don’t suffer from bad breath?

Bad breath is only one symptom of poor oral hygiene. Just because you don’t suffer from bad breath, doesn’t necessarily mean your mouth is at its healthiest it can be.
LISTERINE® doesn’t just freshen your breath; it cleans and protects your whole mouth. Find out more about the benefits from using mouthwash.
